I agree with the first poster.
Ugly design, ugly UI!
How did they manage to take a perfectly good ICS UI and change it into, and I quote GSMArena: "smartphone functionality, dressed in feature phone attire".
WWWWTTTTFFF?!?!?
How did they manage to do this?!
And now, updates will also be delayed because of Pantech's silly customization.
The only thing I like was the unlock screen.
It kinda reminds me of Apple's parody on the "slide to unlock" patent. Now Pantech can patten: "slide your finger to unlock"/"slide to switch on" and sue every electronics company for that great inovation. :)

And this is exactly the sort of thing that is going to kill Apple. A phone like this with good internals and acceptable performance at around 1/3 of the cost of an iphone is the perfect taster for a lot of people in emerging markets to get into smartphones. Are they going to change in several years time when they can afford an iphone? Some will, but plenty more will stay with Android for ever.
